Haiti urged to stop cholera anti-voodoo lynchings [Voodoo practitioners lynched]

The head of Haiti’s voodoo religion has called on authorities to act after dozens of priest lynchings.

At least 45 male and female voodoo priests have been murdered in recent weeks after being blamed for causing the Caribbean country’s deadly Cholera outbreak. Most of the killings have taken place in the coastal town of Jeremie with victims often being hacked to death with machetes.

Max Beauvoir, the supreme leader of Haitian voodoo, who has criticised police for not doing enough to stop the killings, said:’‘We saw what happened in Jeremie. Certainly, immediately, everyone witnessed some holding machetes, cutting. About 45 people died in their hometown. We think that’s horrible and should never be tolerated. That’s why as voodoo practitioners we are rising against that and we will oppose it by any means necessary.’‘

Since emerging in central regions in October some 2500 people have died from Cholera. While some Haitians blame voodoo leaders for spreading the disease with spells and powder, others have accused the UN’s Nepalese force of bringing it to Haiti.

The can REGISTER all the machetes, and impose machete waiting periods. Limit purchases to one machete a month! And, no PRIVATE sales at machete shows! LOL!

They are exactly right though. It is definitely their wanton evil practices that cause their problems.

Sounds like they are getting a bit Elijah on the baal worshippers!

1st Kings
Chapter 18, verse 40

And Elijah said unto them, Take the prophets of Baal; let not one of them escape. And they took them: and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there.

Not only do they have African roots but French roots as well..
They may be not only politically suicidal but politically cannibalistic as well..

One can not just make this stuff up.

Reality is truly stranger than any fiction.

Who are we to try to impose our values on others?

And we are being asked to donate money (called charity) to this backward, continuous rotting, stinking, crooked, cesspool, hellhole by you know who.

Should she (and I shudder to say this) become our next president, we already know from her visit to Haiti and asking the U.S. public to donate, she will be giving away our tax money, our hard earned money, in the name of charity to these types of countries to make herself and a few other do-gooders feel good.

I think you are talking about Rev. Franklin Graham, who invited Sarah Palin to go along with him on a trip he had already arranged.

Also, I would distinguished between charity as trying to help people, and maybe even convert them from voodoo to Christianity, as opposed to “charity” as spending taxpayer dollars on filling the slush funds of third-world dictators.

Franklin Graham is not a social justice, big-government kind of guy, as far as I know.

How odd when Leftists impose their values on us but not Iran,Haiti, Darfur etc. But at least the troops will see their pro-homosex Powerpoint training.

Psht.

Those pathetic things have no power.

Numbers Chapter 23, verse 23 :
Surely there is no enchantment against Jacob, neither is there any divination against Israel: according to this time it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel, What hath God wrought!

Only the name of Christ has real power.
